Steph Curry has not been at his best in the last two games, and now he sustained a quad contusion that could keep him out of the Warriors’ game against the Pelicans on Thursday.
The Warriors’ superstar suffered the injury during the team’s 82-99 loss to the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday night. Curry made just 5 of his 24 field goal attempts vs Dallas, finishing with 14 points, on 1-of-9 three-point shooting.
“The way it feels right now, I’m not optimistic (about playing Thursday),” Curry said.
Two nights earlier in a win against Miami, Curry scored a season-low nine points, shooting 3 of 17 from the floor, including 1 of 10 on 3-pointers.
So, it seems pretty reasonable for Curry to sit out as he recovers from a quad contusion. The Pelicans are coming from three straight losses at home against the top competition, including the Jazz and Suns.
The Warriors are also hoping to see the return of Klay Thompson, who is recovering and is expected to be ready to play soon and share a little of the scoring burden in Golden State’s offense.
